There are many people starting new jobs today. What an exciting way to start the new year! When you start a new job, there is a process. You determine the company you want to work for, then you fill out an application. The company reviews your application and determines if you are qualified; if you are, they give you the job! You are now out of the unemployment line, given a new way of life, and a fresh look into a different world. There are new people, new ideas, and new opportunities. Did you know this is the same thing that happens when you become a Christ follower? You are yanked out of darkness, saved from the forces of evil, and given a fresh start. Give thanks to God everyday, because He has qualified you for salvation in Jesus, and now you share in the inheritance of the saints and are transferred into His kingdom. Doesn’t it feel great to be qualified!
giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, Colossians 1:12-13
